Ditto. I'm not saying a trade is a less desirable end point but they are different. The above listed ARE professions not trades.

Re: Second Wives Club

While I agree they are not trades, I think what she's trying to say is that those are degrees where you leave college having a specific job. Although if I told DH he was in "trade school" he'd get a real kick out of that. That's ok though, good to keep him humble.

Impressive number of posts and views. I wonder what the DS record is!

Re: Second Wives Club

Oh, a DS record, that would awesome. It's slowing down, maybe I need to inject some controversy.

I think the confessions thread might hold the record.

Agreed. They are usually considered "Professional" preparation programs...programs that provide readiness for specific jobs. Law and medicine are two areas, though IMO most other medical professionals should also be included, along with dental professionals, veterinary professionals, etc. To some extent teaching would be the same way, as might be social work, though I don't know that those areas of study are generally lumped in as professional degrees. The difference being that those professional programs really only prepare you for that specialty, whereas even in advanced degree programs, there are frequently a variety of directions one could take his/her career in, KWIM?

That's how I read it as well. A law degree is far more specific than a business degree.
